GROUP A REFLECTION – WEEK 27TH – 30TH MAY 2014.
Another busy week !
Our rabbit family continues to delight us –it is amazing how the babies have grown in the time we have been caring for them- the children have been able to see how they have become stronger and more independent. The children have been able to hold the baby kittens this week – continuous cuddling and loving – the baby kittens seem to be enjoying it as well. Ash the mother rabbit has been able to roam free within our wire enclosure outside eating the grass , which gives her some peace from those hungry babies. The children have been picking some silver beet from our vegetable garden for her to eat as well. The children have created some wonderful drawings of our Rabbit family which are on display in our room.
We were able to explore and learn about more animals with the visit of Wildlife Xposure – Xavier the Presenter brought a number of fascinating Australian native creatures for us to see, touch and learn about. We saw – a beautiful Squirrel Glider, a Potoroo ,a pink Galah, a magnificent Barn Owl, a blue Tongued Lizard. A Goanna, a Turtle, a Green Tree Frog, a Black Headed Python, a huge Olive Python, and a Crocodile. Xavier taught the children about these creatures, their natural habitats, what they eat, and interesting facts about them. The children were very interested and were encouraged to ask questions. The children were able to touch each of them which was a wonderful hands on learning experience. We will extend on this experience by learning more about Australian native wildlife at Kindergarten.
Our Hospital continues to be a busy place and we are continuing to learn more about our bodies and how they work.
Following on from our Bollywood dancing , the children made beautiful floating ribbons to hold while we danced to our Bollywood C.D We will continue to explore moving to different kinds of music. The children look forward each week to our dancing sessions with Karen.
What will happen next week ?
